Abeking & Rasmussen kicked off this week’s proceedings with news of the momentous keel laying of their latest superyacht. Set to join the ranks of the Top 100 when it eventually hits the water, the 118m hull will join the yard’s ever-growing and ever-more impressive portfolio of futuristic builds.
Another shipyard also pushing forward, Angela Pernsteiner of Dominator Yachts spoke to feature writer, George Bains, about the company’s up and coming 20th anniversary and their plans for celebrations. With over 160 yachts on the water, we’re excited to see the yard present their largest yacht ever at the Cannes Show very soon.
But it wasn’t just a week for the big-name shipyards. Presenting a vessel for the future, ENATA Marine released information about their 2020 Foiler. Dubbed ‘the flying yacht’ this one has to be seen to be believed. You can check out a video of the unique yacht, capable of speeds up to 40 knots, here.
In the design world, we also heard future plans from Latitude’s Chief Designer Chulhun Park, who spoke to Superyachts.com this week, unveiling details of two new projects, namely Zeon and Venon. More information about the designs will be available, of course, at the MYS this year. We wish Latitude Yachts the best of responses.
Elsewhere and outside of the superyacht industry, writer Anna Solomon had the pleasure of speaking with the CEO of Bankable, Eric Mouilleron, about the latest concept poised to take the industry by storm. A forward-thinking idea, you can read more about Cash Free Yachting and how it might benefit your vessel, here.
Another company bringing forward a unique idea this week was West Nautical. Following a successful season of charter bookings this season, their CA, Lady Amanda has a new and eye-catching offer. The 30m motor yacht will be offering guests a ‘no rain guarantee’ if booked in the Med’s low season… this is certainly a risk worth taking!
Speaking of charters, those looking for some inspiration for their next destination should look to Nomad IV; the 30 metre sailing yacht built by Italian shipyard Maxi Dolphin offering its guests a unique experience like no other this coming spring. Available for charter in French Polynesia with central agents at Bernard Gallay, this is an opportunity not to be missed and in this week’s Charter Focus, Jenna Mehdi explains why.
Last but by no means least, it wouldn’t be a newsletter without a Benetti story. The unstoppable shipyard announced yet another sale: the first Benetti Oasis 40m. We look forward to watching this future build’s journey to the water. ‘Til next time.
